Featured Artists

This small selection represents just some of the local and national artists that have exhibited at the Carr Center gallery. From solo shows to large group exhibitions, the Carr Center has always been a place where audiences can find and engage with thought provoking and engaging works of art.

The Carr Center Gallery serves as a venue for the display, experience, and discussion, of insightful and provocative works of art and culture that speak to or speak from black experience. Our purpose as a creative space is to challenge traditions, realign standards, and break rules with the ultimate goal of creating accessible art-based, deep learning experiences.
